Today marks another year celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women, as supporters for International Women’s Day campaign this year to #BeBoldForChange.

Across the globe, women and men alike will not only be glorifying women’s achievements throughout history, but they will also be raising awareness to take action for gender parity.

Taking part in today’s international event will be innumerable organisations and individuals, one being Tomorrow’s Women Wirral— an independent organisation run by women, for women, which offers support for all women’s needs.

From 11am until 3pm on Beckwith Street East, Birkenhead, members of Tomorrow’s Women Wirral are ready to flaunt this year’s campaign.

Titled as #BeBoldForChange, the International Women’s Day 2017 campaign has launched to help forge a better working world in order to bring a gender inclusivity.

The Wirral’s only all-female organisation will be celebrating the history of women by inviting women to try foods from around the world, provide free henna tattoos, free polished nails and many more activities.

Tomorrow’s Women Wirral have also announced that there will be a variety of inspirational female speakers, from the Director of Public Health Wirral, Fiona Johnson, and Rachel from the Mums2Marathons charity.

Last year saw the support for the #PledgeForParity campaign, which projected an awareness to help women and girls achieve their ambitions; challenge conscious and unconscious bias; call for gender-balanced leadership; value women and men’s contributions equally; and create inclusive flexible cultures.

Yet this year, supporters of International Women’s Day want women, men and non-binary people to join together and accelerate gender equality in all living and working aspects.

The International Women’s Day website said: “Through purposeful collaboration, we can help women advance and unleash the limitless potential offered to economies the world over.

“Every person – women, men and non-binary people – can play a part in helping drive better outcomes for women.

“Through meaningful celebration and targeted bold action, we can all be responsive and responsible leaders in creating a more gender inclusive world.”
